Down Deep - Documentary
American energy independence is within our grasp. You've probably heard of "fracking" or more accurately, hydraulic fracturing. It's the practice of using pressurized water to fracture rock deep below the earth's surface, creating tiny cracks that allow oil and natural gas to flow freely. You've probably also heard that it causes it array of environmental issues - from burning tapwater to mysterious earthquakes. Unfortunately, what you haven't heard are the facts.
The fact is that hydraulic fracturing holds the key to an independent energy future for our country. It provides a clean burning, reliable source of energy that heats our homes, powers our industries and is used to create items that we use every single day. There have been no proven instances of gas migration into water sources anywhere in the country in hydraulic fracuring's 70 year history.
